Details from Tamron USA about this lens:

Setting high-performance DSLRs free with SP engineering, strengthened by F/2.8 maximum aperture advantages and Tamron VC.

The compositional options afforded by the SP 17-50mm F/2.8 Di-II VC’s wide-to-moderate-telephoto zoom characteristics are prized by experienced photographers, rendering a picture angle range approximating a 26-78mm lens on a full frame DSLR or a 35mm SLR. A fast and constant F/2.8 maximum aperture allows cluttered backgrounds to be softly obscured, additional freedom in low-light conditions and added viewfinder brightness. State-of-the art properties, including XR (Extra Refractive Index) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass in an optical formula employing 19 elements and 14 groups—assures sharpness, optimal contrast and breathtaking image fidelity. Its form factor and handling characteristics can be traced to the use of aspherical element design and internal focus. Tamron’s proprietary tri-axial VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization adds to image sharpness and further expands low-light shooting freedom by combating image blur resulting from camera shake. Tri-axial VC addresses the adverse effects of camera shake in three planes making it possible to shoot handheld at as many as four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible.

The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.

    I have been following MCP for sometime and have learned SO much! I am not new to photography however I only do this as a hobby so far. I am a nurse by trade. I have 2 girls one in college and one on the way to college so I would LOVE to win this lens! I have never had a lens that fast just due to the cost!!!!! I am getting ready to do the photos on Sept. 22, 2012 for my dear friend, she is 63 and getting married for the second time after being married the first time for over 30 years. I am so nervous! THis would be wonderful to have! My husband just got me a new camera an Nikon SLR however hard for most to understand the cost of photography! I enjoy photography and especially taking journalistic photos. My youngest dtr. plays softball so I take LOTS of sports shots. I generally shoot an 18-200 that is my go to lens however it is 3.5 of course however when I shoot softball I use a 70-300 3.5. I also have a 50 fixed. I would love a faster lens and would surely use it for wedding photography!!!! I have defiantly liked MCP on Facebook and read the articles and have surely learned so much! I hope I win… have never won a thing…. at 43 years old……

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    -I consider it to be one of the most versatile lens to work with given that it is wide enough to shoot a crowded space or a group of people and it’s also a great lens to do portraits. It will give me what I need to get ‘in there’ and also to shoot stunning images in low light situations.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    -By far, I love the 50mm because It goes so much with my style of shooting and gives my images the natural feel I always look for.

    This lens would benefit me and my photography SO much! My husband has been laid off for 6 months, so buying goodies for me and my business has been at a dead halt since I bought my Canon 60d. I only shoot with a kit lens and feel my potential is being held back by the lack of professional equipment. I NEED this lens. I’ve been eyeballing it for a long time and begging family members for it as a birthday gift.

    My favorite focal length is 50 mm, but I haven’t really been able to experiment much because of lack of funds to buy quality equipment!

    I’ve like MCP on facebook for a LONG time!

    1.This lens would help me be more creative with close up portraiture, a definite must for landscape, and large groups
    2.my favorite focal length really depends on the task at hand, I really like fast glass and shoot sideline football with a 70-200mm f2.8 IR l Cannon. 80 mm 2.8 portraits 28mm wide angle. thi lens would truly give me a wide angle lens!
    3.I do LIKE and follow MCP on facebook

    I’ve been looking for a faster Zoom lens that also provides a wide angle opportunity. The Tamron 17-50- f2.8 II for my Canon T2i camera will allow me to improve my astrophotography, single and time-lapse shots,because of the faster f-stop. Currently, my fastest lens is a old fixed 50mm, f1.8; however, I prefer shooting wide angle. It allows me to capture foreground objects, as well as the sky.
    I like MCP Actions on Facebook. It has a lot of information that will help me improve my shooting and post processing, especially in Lightroom.

    How would this lens benefit your photography?

    It definitely is the best replacement for my canon 18 55 kit lens. “Best” in terms of “bang for the buck” value. If I don’t win in this competition, I’m going to buy this anyways.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?

    When I’m using my kit lens I’m usually around 20-25mm. But since I also have the nifty-fifty and it’s a way lot better than the kit, 50mm then. If I get my hands on this tamron 17 50, I’d probably be using the nifty-fifty less often.

    Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook

    Done!

    The lens will improve my portraits photography.
    While I don’t believe that there is the best focal length, the range of 85 – 100 mm is probably the most refered and used range for portraits photography. But then, so are 35mm lenses or long focal lengths, all the way up to 400mm is quite common. Every situation does call for it’s own “perfect” focal lengths.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?

    I have a 50mm and I love it but I am ready for something new! If I win this tamron 17 50, I’d probably be using my 50mm less often.

    This lens would benefit my photography by allowing me to shoot wider and faster at weddings without having to change out my lenses so often! My favorite focal length for portraits is 50mm and 24mm for scenery.

  19. 3119

    I could benefit by having a faster zoom for my nikon, which would be great for video. I personally love my 85 macro, it’s a lens that most people snub, but I think it’s amazing.

  20. 3120

    I would greatly benefit with this lens by being able to take better
    wedding portraits without the need for flash when the sun starts going down.
    My favorite focal lengths I like to shoot with are between 100mm and 400mm for sports photos, and 50mm to 85 mm for portraits.
    I have been a loyal Tamron lens owner for over 35 years and I own 2 telephoto lenses that I love. Both are without image stabilization and an aperture of 4-5.6 at the larges opening:one is an adaptall 70mm to 250mm non-AF and the other is an AF 75mm to 300mm that is an canon af-s, which really makes it hard to take decent pictures once the sun starts setting. :>(
    Thank You.

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I am just beginning my career in Photography and right now while I am establishing myself I either have to rent equipment or work with what I’ve got (which is limited). This lens would greatly benefit me because it would offer me a lot of different perspectives and clear, crisp, creamy textures!

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? 50mm is my favourite :)

    I only have one lens, I have a canon camera. My camera is like my purse, I take it everywhere. I LOVE pictures ! I would enjoy have different lens to choose from. I enjoy sports shots, landscape, and potraits. I like to see life though pictures ( I captured a small boy holding his great great grandparents photo at a memorial service this weekend for the great great grandfather. The small boy will only know them by their pictures.). I would like to preserve special moments in life and this lens would help me. :O)

    Dezarea says:

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    This lens would benefit me because I would be able to shoot a wider group in a small area. I also am starting to do more portrait shoots and only have the 18-270 so the F stop is much better on this lens than the one I currently own. :) My hubby is unemployed and so am I and I have just started doing photography in a more professional manner so more lenses would make my work a lot more versatile :)

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?

    I think that 35-55mm is my favorite length to shoot at. Although I only have the 18-270 lens so I cant really pick an exact favorite. :)

    1) This lens would benefit the quality of my photography, taking it to the next level will bring confidence in my shooting and I would love to be able to do weddings :) I would also like to give my clients an even better product.

    2) My favorite focal length is 50mm because it’s so clear. The clarity is unbeatable and with a 2.8 it would be amazing!

    Thanks for this opportunity!

    I would love this lens for my close up photography. I am going on a vacation to costa rica and I would love to be able to bring this lens along with me.

    I mostly use my tamron 18-270mm for everyday use.

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography?

    Right now I only have a kit lens, and it is frustrating me a lot. I would really like to get the tamron lens because of the nice bokeh.

    2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?

    Most of the images I take are around the 40mm range.
